Here's the 17-year-old Queen Llys of Iophar done up in Photoshop color. She's holding the magic scepter which casts light into the darkness and opens up the great cavern where the "Flame of Iridar" lives. The Flame is a cosmic being which makes its home under the City of Magic. In the book we discover that there is another Flame which is the first one's evil twin, and they ultimately battle it out in an apocalyptic conflict.
The coloring here is the style sometimes used for graphic novels or comic books, with mostly flat areas not built up to resemble paintings or photographs. This is the "young adult" version of Llys. If I made a book cover depicting her, she'd be a buxom babe in a very low-cut dress with lots of pushed-up boob cleavage, as is the rule for these things.
